That is why I think NASCAR is pretty cool, they have to be giving 100% every race. They can't afford to slack off like people in other sports.Bronco Rob said:Even college sports don't do anything for me anymore, the only thing i really watch is NASCAR, and their overpayed, but they are also payed for how they perform.

it is not the players fault. they don't hold a gun to the owners heads and demand the contract. they accept the contracts they are offered.Bronco Rob said:I don't know why it is, but sports just don't impress me anymore. Knowing that these people aren't literally being "paid" to be at the olympics, but knowing they are going to make millions in advertising when they get home kind of irritates me.
all the "N" sports irritate me anymore, NFL, NHL, and MLB is all a joke. These f*cking morons are getting paid to PLAY a game, and there pissed there only making 8 million a year?????
Gimme a break, i played hockey for close to 20 years, i wanted to go pro, but my knees prevented that. If you freaking gave me 40k a year i would play hockey, just because i would be so satisfied with what i was doing.

No they just go on strike for a year.ScorpionBoy said:it is not the players fault. they don't hold a gun to the owners heads and demand the contract. they accept the contracts they are offered.
i don't really see a diff between nascar driver and an nhl center. in fact, nhl guys don't get paid for olympics. they don't get paid for playoffs.
i think you are exagerating a little bit. nhl players get traded all the time and lots get sent to the minors.Bronco Rob said:No they just go on strike for a year.
I never said they do get paid for the Olympics.....as for the playoffs, they shouldn't get paid, they should be HAPPY to be there. And the fact that they made 4 million for the REST of the year kind of covers the playoffs.
I see a big difference between a NASCAR driver and a Center in the NHL. If a driver isn't performing, he can be replaced rather quickly, his contract can be written on a per race basis. With the stinking NHL union, if you got a dead player, your stuck paying out their salary til the end of their 3 year contract or buying out the contract.
NASCAR driver's performance on and off the track GREATLY affects their career.

so what does a nascar driver get per race, like $50 or something? i am sure they are making bank too.
i think that sounds like summer sport, so go ahead and watch. fun stuff. the snowboard cross was super wild to watch. the hockey is really good too.JahWarrior said:Until they have MMA in the Olympics, I'll stick to UFC and Pride:box0715:
You'd think you have someting against NBC. :scratchhemarv said:It was complained on TV this morning that the olympics are sinking w/NBC 'cause the "announcers" spend more time profiling the athletes than on the events. Duh! What's the point of watching? And the results are already in before NBC's taped broadcast anyway.
His comment was great, and quite accurate. It wasn't a racist comment, it was a comment about racists :histericamarv said:And Brian Gumbel's racist comment didn't help.
Thats richBryant Gumbel said:“try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of Blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention”
